I'm assuming you've done a swap in your car, as your car should have come with the 7.5. Also, the 3.73 set your looking at is not origional equipment in the mustang your getting it out of. But if you have a 8.8, then you can use the 3.73 out of an 8.8. Just make sure it has a good wear pattern and put on a new crush coller when installing.
